Barbados take lead in Davis Cup

Tennis 2

Barbados took a 2-1 lead on day two of their second-round Davis Cup tie against El Salvador at the National Tennis Centre, Wildey, St. Michael today.

Competing in doubles action, the pair of Darian King and Haydn Lewis won their encounter 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 over Salvadorian siblings, Rafael and Tennis 4Marcello Aravelo. The fourth set was not contested after Marcello could not take the court suffering with a back problem for which he had complained the previous day.

The brothers had earlier won the first set relatively comfortably before King and Lewis came storming back to take the second. The third set was the most exciting of the three played, going into a tie-breaker before King and Lewis prevailed.

After the game King told Barbados TODAY they were happy to have won though they didn’t play at their best.

It was not our best game but we fed off the crowd. They really kept us going,” he said.

Tomorrow Barbados can wrap up the tie by winning the reverse singles.

The action starts at 10 a.m.
